Cost of Living (play) Overview

Martyna Majok's play Cost of Living, winner of the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, tells the story of two relationships, each involving one able-bodied individual and one who is physically disabled. One relationship has ended, but the feelings that brought the participants together remain: the other begins as a purely professional arrangement, but soon morphs into another situation entirely. The play explores themes such as isolation, otherness, and the importance of sustaining hope in the most trying of situations.
